Description:
A solo project by Al MARGOLIS, an American composer associated with experimental electronic music, one of the most important artists of INDUSTRIAL CULTURE and its international cassette network. He debuted in 1984 releasing more than 300 tapes of various artists from different independent music circles on his own SOUND OF PIG label up to 1991. As a composer he gained considerable acclaim for his fusion of the indu- strial avant-garde of rock music with new trends and styles penetrating the borderland intersection of Dadaist noise and academic electroaco- ustic music. He solely employs analogue devices and musical instruments, as well as pre-recorded ambient sounds subjected to numerous distortion. Mostly he uses the sound collage technique, antimusical distortion of sonic textures, as well as arduous tape noise processing. He has formed pro- jects with his many artist friends, e.g. XTSW, BWANA DOG, AS IF (SQUARED) BWANA. From 1989 he, David PRESCOTT and GEN KEN MONTGOMERY (two years later they refused to co-operate) started to run the POGUS PRODUC- TIONS record label, releasing records of many artists from academic circles (e.g. Pauline OLIVEROS, AMM, Rune LINDBLAD).
